This June, The Sands had the absolute pleasure of hosting the beach wedding of Christina and Gary, a beautiful couple both on the inside and out! Gary & Christina first met five years ago while working in the New York City Police Department. After visiting The Sands a year ago, they knew that Turks & Caicos and The Sands was where they would plan their dream destination wedding.
They chose to have an intimate ceremony right on our beautiful stretch of Grace Bay Beach, that was followed by a tented wedding reception and lively beach BBQ dinner while guests enjoyed the sunset over the ocean. Their perfect evening ended with rum punch, island music and entertainment, limbo dancing, a beach bonfire and s’mores!
Here is an incredibly kind note from Christina and Gary, about their wedding experience at The Sands:
We love The Sands!!! We can’t wait to go back. This is our second trip and this time we got married!!! June 29, 2013 was an incredible day. The ceremony was done by The Sands on the beach. It was magical!! The only way to get married! We had 48 of our closest friends and family stay at the sands and every one of them loved it. As our guests arrived at the resort we met them at the front desk. They were so excited when they actually saw the resort and were greeted with rum punch. We told everyone as soon as they got there to check in and meet us at the beach. As they did they could not wait to get in the water. The staff at The Sands is so friendly and helpful. They made us feel like family. The atmosphere is incredibly calm, relaxing and beautiful. Hemingway’s food is fresh & delicious. The kitchen in the room is so handy. We went food shopping and filled the fridge. We made our own coffee every morning. All of our guests took advantage of the snorkel gear, hobies, paddleboards, kayaks and the bikes. The shopping area is a 2 minute bike ride from The Sands. The beach is like nothing we have ever seen before. When you are on the website for The Sands and wonder if the beach, grounds and rooms actually look like the pictures…the answer is YES! Clean rooms, beautiful gardens and so much more. If you are thinking about having a destination wedding or renewing your vows this is the place to do it. The prices are reasonable and the Resort is stunning. I was able to get a Mani Pedi at Spa Tropique. It was very relaxing. Everyone is still talking about the trip and the wedding! We were so lucky to have found such a beautiful resort and such wonderful people to take care of us while we were there.
Thank you all at The Sands for making my husband and I feel so welcome. We can’t wait to see you all again. – Gary & Christina
Gary & Christina – Congratulations to you both! We sincerely hope you are able to come celebrate your anniversaries and future family vacations here with us ….your “home away from home” in tropical Turks & Caicos!
